2020 DAYS OUT WITH THOMAS

Enjoy Thomas’s extra special 75th Birthday celebration as he and his friends pull into Chappel station….

Calling all little engineers! Join Thomas, the number one blue engine, as he visits the East Anglian Railway Museum for a day of celebration and family fun. The Fat Controller will be on hand to make sure that Thomas is being a really useful engine whilst Rusty and Dusty, Sodor’s Station Sweepers, will be causing mischief.

Day Out With Thomas is an event the whole family can enjoy. Take a train ride behind Thomas and his friends, Daisy, Percy and Toad will all be here. Complete your Passport To Adventures and Junior Engineer Certificate, watch re-enactments of classic Thomas stories and much more.
